I made these, some are pins, some are hair clips. I love them, perfect for summer.


You Need:
Rhinstone Setter Backing *YOU KNOW, THE THINGS WITH THE PRONGS BY THE RHINSTONES*
Rhinestones *MAKE SURE THEY FIT INSIDE OF YOUR BACKING*
Thimble
Fake Flower
Iron
Tacky Glue
Hot GLue Gun
Backs for pins or Hair clips *I USED THE ONES THAT THE HAIRSTYLISTS USES TO HOLD YOUR HAIR BACK WHEN YOUR GETTING A CUT. THE FLATTER THE BETTER*

First, take apart your flower and iron it flat if needed.  So that it looks just like this. With no middle or any backing.

Then, take your rhinstone backing and push it through the back of the flower, making sure you go through all the layers. *YOU MAY NOT WANT A THICK FLOWER, JUST SOMETHING A LITTLE ON THE THINNER SIDE*
Then, put your rhinestone inside of the prongs *IT MAY MOVE AROUND A BIT*

Take your thimble and push the prongs inward to make the rhinstone stay in place.

Place some hot glue on the pin back or hair clip and glue the flower in place.

They will look like this, depending on what you used for the backing

Then glue rhinstones on them, however you please. But dont go overboard, remember less is more sometimes.

Hope that was clear enough, sorry the pics suck, but my cam needs batteries.

Those look so great!  I ended up making some just like that when a shmantzy pants store in my town was selling them for like $15!  Of course I'm such an 80's nerd that I still have the whole Bedazzler setup.  Wink
